The hosts of “Morning Joe” engaged in a bizarre attack against former President Trump on Monday, accusing him of putting out a “dangerous” and “antisemitic screed” on Truth Social that endangers American Jews and Israel.

“No President has done more for Israel than I have,” Trump asserted on Truth Social. “Somewhat surprisingly, however, our wonderful Evangelicals are far more appreciative of this than the people of the Jewish faith, especially those living in the U.S. Those living in Israel, though, are a different story – Highest approval rating in the World, could easily be P.M.! U.S. Jews have to get their act together and appreciate what they have in Israel – Before it is too late!”
Trump’s message was displayed on-screen in fine print and dimly lit. It became obvious that the hosts had not thoroughly read the message, bothered to really grasp what it meant, or worse yet, deliberately misinterpreted it. He was calling for stronger support of Israel by American Jews but that is not how the leftist media spun it.
Host Joe Scarborough began enthusiastically bashing Trump and then asked MSNBC reporter Jonathan Lemire about what he described as “this antisemitic screed that Donald Trump went on yesterday, a lot of observers saying that I saw yesterday at least, conservatives saying this was his worst antisemitic rant yet. Tell us, give us some reporting from it. What was it about? What was behind it?”
“No one knows,” Lemire responded. “It seems to have come out of nowhere, this rant from the former president over the weekend. But he has danced very dangerously [close] to anti-semitic remarks before, a couple of moments during the campaign. His defense would be my daughter is married to someone who is Jewish. Therefore I can’t be antisemitic, but this is pretty repulsive stuff, and it was widely condemned, not just by the usual Democrats; some conservatives also spoke out against this.”

Lemire then did his level best to tie the rise in hate crimes to the former president.
“This tweet comes at a moment where bias incidents and hate crimes, antisemitic incidents are already skyrocketing, they have been on the rise in recent years, and it feels like we know the president has inspired the violence of January 6th, called for supporters to be violent other times, related to the Mar-a-Lago case, sending out warnings, and threats to the FBI, and the fear here is this could be interpreted by his followers as a moment to potentially commit violence against Jews, and that is deeply worrisome, and we will now need to see who else steps forward and do any Republican lawmakers also condemn these remarks in the days ahead,” he outrageously asserted.
We know so much better. Look at Trump’s record. MSNBC misinformation and disinformation.

“There were some observers that said, ‘as always, it’s not about Jews in Israel, it’s not about Jews in America, it’s always about Donald Trump,’” Scarborough dishonestly contended. “Over three out of four Jews in America voted for Joe Biden, so there are people close to him that suggest that still wrangles him that he got beaten so badly among Jewish voters in America, but to do that, and say basically they better get their act together before it’s too late, sounds ominous. It sounds ominous, like saying that Mitch McConnell has a ‘death wish.’”
“Pro-Israel” and “antisemitic” in the same sentence 😂😂 American Leftist Jews do not put Israel first as they should.

Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt also hammered Trump, saying, “We don’t need the former president, who curries favor with extremists and antisemites, to lecture us about the U.S.-Israel relationship. It is not about a quid pro quo; it rests on shared values and security interests. This ‘Jewsplaining’ is insulting and disgusting.”
